The apple of our eyes...

Err, wrong kind of apple... and wrong kind of parent...

THAT'S more like it. At week 15, our little Hazelnut is ~4 inches long (like an APPLE apple!), and 2.5 ounces.

I don’t think we need to see my face in ALL these pictures… especially since the focus is quickly turning to my swollen abdomen. A swollen abdomen that people are now commenting on without my prompting!

Some days my belly is bigger than others (umm, bloating.), but I decided that it was time to break out the new maternity pants. MAN those things are comfortable. I may be hard-pressed to ever return to normal pants again.

Not much else to say for this week! Other than discomfort from bloating (which, apparently, is totally and completely normal at this stage), I’m doing great. I'm loving celery and carrots, and REALLY loving how real the pregnancy is feeling now that I can SEE it.

You guys are sooo cute! I love the work you're putting into this! Make sure you print these weekly posts off and put them in a scrapbook as a keepsake for your little one :-)
See you Wed.

J and L your apples are very different from each others. Lowell's has massive computational power but Julie's will be a person. Hmmm interesting.

Hey. Hope you guys don't mind us following your blog. Barely know you both but think that the fruit idea is awesome and it's really interesting to watch as you progress. That and you have a talent for writing.
Glad you guys are having such a great time. Hope to be able to do something sometime.
I'm asking you after the fact but do you mind if I link you to our blog. You guys inspired me to start one after the cross country skiing and I've been trying to keep our family up to date with our Canadian adventure.
Anyhow hope you guys are both fantastic. Keep well - Ryan and Adele
